Anyone think TRU will ever get more MP Grimlocks in stock?

    Any chance the TRU MP Grimlocks will be restocked online or are they sold out forever?

    Yeah, they've been reported at all but one TRU in the area- and that's because that particular TRU is going to be moving soon, but they aren't picking up too much new stock.

    The insecticons and perceptor (and animated arcee, and titanium prowl/grimlock) were all hard to find at first, but after a while, they flooded the shelves. If I were looking for a MP Grimlock, I'd strongly resist paying scalper prices. They'll show up eventually.

    Can someone pick me up one? My local TRUs do NOT have them in stock, then again they seem to not care about TFs in the least.

    I don't think it's even been a week since these have first been sighted in the US. I was lucky enough to get one online and I didn't even know I was getting one until last Thursday when they emailed out confirmations. It hasn't really hit many areas in PA either. I think I've only noticed 2-3 PA sightings; and a good number of people update that thread (that takes an extra click to get to now). A lot of stores haven't received them at all yet. I think we need to wait another week or so before we see if he's tough to find.

    I live more than an hour away from the closest TRU, so it'd cost me more for gas than it would for shipping hence why I'm wanting to get one online.

    I'd say they will probably restock online once they fulfill the other orders that were placed online. Who knows, some people may cancel their order and then 'magically' they may appear "In Stock" for a minute, hour, days, etc.

    Well TRU has removed MP Grimlock order page again for the second time.

    But before that, they asked for your email address so they can send you an email to let you know it is avaliable.

    Patience people, They're going to stock more. Patience.


    What is it with you people lacking patience. If you knew me in real life i'm more impatient than anyone. They're toys not the the last ticket for the last ever U2 concert folks.

    Remember, even with Generations stuff it didn't REALLY start showing up in a wide range of TRU stores until the online store got caught up on backorders.

    Also, from my experience there has NEVER been a TRU exclusive that hasn't been abundant in the end. I mean, right at Botcon time I could have picked up 10 animated Arcees, and that was an impossible exclusive to get for months in this area.

    You know how you beat scalpers?

    Go to the damn store yourself and get to the toy before they do.

    Trust me. Personal experience. There's a local scalper here, his ebay handle is canofrage. It's pretty common to bump into him at Toys R Us on opening. He's a short, fat, bald guy. I'm 5'10", 150. He's not getting to the aisle before I do.
